Marcus Dewayne Bowen also known as Excaliba, was born to Marilyn Marie Bowen in 1982 and raised in Memphis, TN. Excaliba's been writing since the age of 12. He wrote his first full song at the age of 13, and had his first recording at the age of 14. He's lived in Nebraska, Nashville, TN, Washington D.C. and Atlanta, GA, and a couple of other cities for short periods of time.



Some of Excaliba's music influences are Tupac, EPMD, KRS1, Easy E, 8 Ball & MJG, UGK, Biggie, Three 6 Mafia, and a few more other great artists. His point of expression is to show people who come from where he's come from or who are trying to go where he's going, that you can have success no matter what.     


In 2011 he encountered the passing of his brother, which offset him to release the hot single "Da Truth" in 2013. Not too long afterwards, Excaliba experienced the passing of his beloved mother in June 2014. Afterwards he spent much needed time back home in Memphis, Tennessee with his family. In 2019 he re-released the remarkable single "Where You At", with the lyric video, and the offical music video, while also collaborating with other businesses, licensing his music to companies for advertisements, promotional, and etc. purposes.
